Peppermint Sticks – Parent to Candy Canes
The peppermint flavor in these sticks is rich and robust, with a classic porous texture. 12 sticks (7 oz) in a heat-sealed bag with the history on the label: perfect to carry, perfect to store, perfect to give as a gift. Some breakage may occur in handling – these were called “bits” and enjoyed in the 1800s.
A Bit of History
These festive candy sticks were first hand-pulled, but in 1837 Boston candy-makers announced a machine that could produce them quickly, in even three-inch pieces. The decorative stripe appeared soon after.
